Most of West India experiences transition/spring weather during this period as temps rise from the winter levels but are lower than summer levels .Mostly sunny and dry to extremely dry weather prevails.Because of the dry weather , diurnal temp variation can be very high over the interior coastal plains and Deccan plateau. 1.Maharashtra coastal plain / Gujarat plains Maharashtra coastal plain has very dry, warm to hot days and mild to cool nights .Humidity can fall below 20% even near the sea. As we move away from the sea towards the interior coastal region, the days become hotter(can be hottest and driest in the country during this time of the year) and nights bit cooler.The diurnal variation of temp can be high (more than 20 c). Gujarat plains(Rajkot) have warm to hot days and cool nights.
2. Deccan Plateau (Maharashtra) North west Deccan plateau (Nasik , Pune) has extremely dry,hot days and cool to cold nights .Humidity can fall below 10%. Diurnal variation of temp can be very high (upto 25 c). Vidarbha (Eastern Maharashtra Deccan) can experience some thunderstorms during this season, as it is just the start of summer thunderstorm season over central India.Nagpur is representative of this weather. South Deccan plateau(Solapur) experiences early summer type conditions (very hot and very dry).
Sooner than expected, on Monday 17th itself the hot temperatures showed up as per our estimate...Hot in the North Konkan and Interiors... Mumbai Scruz 38.1c (+ 7.6c), ...Hottest place in India today ! (AWS taken separate) No record for February though...Highest record for February in Scruz was 39.6c in 1966.

A weather research station on Seymour Island in the Antarctic Peninsula registered a temperature of 69.3 degrees (20.75 Celsius) on Feb. 9, according to Márcio Rocha Francelino, a professor at the Federal University of Vicosa in Brazil.
The nearly 70-degree temperature is significantly higher than the
65-degree reading taken Feb. 6 at the Esperanza Base along Antarctica’s Trinity Peninsula. The World Meteorological Organization (WMO) is reviewing that reading to see whether it qualifies as the continent’s
hottest temperature on record.
The new data, which was reviewed by The Washington Post, came from a research station that has been in place for 12 years, used mainly for monitoring the layer of permanently frozen soil known as permafrost. Francelino said the temperature sensor is located in a flat and open area, without obstacles.
Randall Cerveny, a meteorologist at Arizona State University who verifies
extremes for the WMO, previously called the Esperanza reading a
“likely record.” On Thursday, he said the organization is looking into the new
report, too, but urged caution about the higher reading.
He said many questions will have to be answered before the nearly 70-degree
reading is considered the hottest temperature yet recorded on the planet’s coldest continent.
“We will want to look very critically at the station’s metadata (how long was
it in place, how good has its observations been, what type of instruments
were used, when were they last calibrated, etc.),” he said in an email.
“All of those things are critical to determining the validity of the observation.”
Computer model forecasts had suggested large parts of the Antarctic
peninsula would be between 20 and 40 degrees above normal
between Feb. 7 and Feb. 9, as an unusually strong high-pressure
zone was in the vicinity.But the average temperature in the first days
of February at the Seymour Island research station was a more
Posted 14th February: Unexpected Untimely Heat: With the last visible weather system around the Indian Sub Continent moving away, we have no major system or event forming in the next 4 days. (Only a weak insignificant East-west trough along the 20N line).
Also. days have tarted heating up over larger aeas, starting from the Southern Peninsula...a bit early for the season...With Gulbarga (N.I.Karnataka) recording 38.4c on 13th February.
Hence strong gusty winds in the NW region , including Delhi, will prevail. This could result in a fall of 3/4c in the NW plains and Delhi next two nights. (Current level Delhi = 13.7c) from current levels of 11-13c.
Outlook from 14th February-19th February:
Dry weather all over India (Except the Extreme NE States where light isolated rains expected )
Next system, a WD coming to our region from 19th February.
Outlook from 14th February-19th February:
Dry and sunny for Rajasthan, Delhi, M.P, Gujarat, Maharastra, Telengana, A.P, Karnataka and Goa.
Mumbai: Already touched 35.7c (Scruz), 35.5c (Thane), 34.9c (Badlapur) and 35c (Karjat) on 13th. But with lower humidity. Expected to remain in the 35/36c range till 19th. Nights also getting warmer without the nip.
Pune: Gradually loosing the winter nip and rising to 33c in the time frame mentioned.
Warning: However, Interior North Konkan, (Panvel,Karjat, Badlapur and surroundings) expected to become hot from Monday thru Wednesday going up to 38/39c. An isolated 40c may also pop up.
Surat and Inetroir Gujarat may riase to 37c next week.
Expecting the Weather to "take it easy" and cool down to reasonable readings after 19th...
As global warming propaganda is discussed, some scientists warn that a far different type of climate change is headed our way.
We should be bracing for a prolonged solar minimum that could last for decades, until the 2050s, says Prof. Valentina Zharkova, a professor of mathematics at Northumbria University in Newcastle, England.
Zharkova is not alone in saying that the earth is headed into a solar minimum. According to NASA, the Sun will reach its lowest activity in over 200 years in 2020.
“The Sun is approaching a hibernation period,” says Professor Zharkova, who has published multiple scientific papers on solar minimums.
“Less sunspots will be formed on the solar surface and thus less energy and radiation will be emitted towards the planets and the Earth.”
This could cause global temperatures to drop by one degree Celsius, says Dr. Zharkova, who also has a doctorate in astrophysics.
While a one-degree drop may sound insignificant, it could trigger a slow down in agricultural production. Agricultural seasons could be shorter for several decades.
As we have seen in the past couple of years when the snow in Spain and Greece in April and May demolished the veggie fields, and the UK had a deficit of broccoli, and other fruits and veggies.”
Zharkova also pointed to recent unusual chills in Canada and Iceland as evidence of the Grand Solar Minimum (GSM) already taking hold.
“We can only hope that the mini ice age will not be as severe as it was during the Maunder minimum,” Zharkova said.
The Maunder Minimum, known as a Grand Solar Minimum (GSM), occurred from the mid-16th century until the early 17th century, and coincided with a time on Earth known as the Little Ice Age.
“The reduction in temperature will results in cold weathers on Earth, wet and cold summers, cold and wet winters,” said Zharkova. “We will possibly get big frosts as is happening now in Canada where they see [temperatures] of -50C.
One solar scientist, Matthew Owens from the University of Reading, believes that any cooling effect of a GSM will be “vastly offset” by anthropogenic global warm

Posted 8th February Afternoon: Extremely Low Day temperatures in the region marked. This was due to rain showers in the region due to interaction of NW winds with east winds.
Sunday 9th - Wednesday 12th: North West India will see gusts of NW winds continuing. Thus temperatures remaining low ,below normal, in the region. Delhi will not see large change from current weather till Wednesday. Rise and warmer after Wednesday. Sunday 9th Feb-Wednesday 12th Feb: Mumbai: Pleasant weather at 28-16 range now, will end from Sunday 9th. Gradually warming up from Sunday, day and night, till Wednesday 12th. Day will be hotter by 5c to 33/34c. Outer townships in the East will see hotter days of around 35c or more. Pune: Rising trend in the weather from Sunday 9th. The 11s and 12s will give way to 17s and 18s.
